Reviews - What do customers think about Incredible Clay Book (Klutz)?
good book for those who are curious Oct 28, 2007
I'm taking a jewelry making class and our instructor recommended this book for making millfiori beads. If you aren't sure if you want to take up this hobby then this is the book for you. It shows you the many ways you can shape the clay into miniture items (mini foods and animals) besides beads. Plus the author is kind enough to provide you with polymer clay in 8 useful colors for projects in the book and for ideas of your own. Note to those who are thinking of dabbling in polymer clay: - when baking the clay, use a separate toaster to bake your projects otherwise the food that you cook in your toaster will retain the fumes from the clay. Buy a cheap toaster-oven from Wal-Mart or Target. - get a thermometer by Scupley at www.polymerclaysuperstore.com - so you won't burn your projects - soap and water will not take the excess residue from off of your hands. You need to use rubbing alcohol and some cotton balls.
Other than that - you're good to go! Have fun and good luck!
I really love this book! May 30, 1999
I love this book! It's great! For those people who ran out of clay, try White Rose or Michaels for Sculpey III, or any well-stocked craft store would have it. BYE!
Started an obsession! Dec 23, 1998
I received this book 3 years ago as a Christmas gift, and it sparked such an interest, that I began making gifts for every occasion, and then branched into selling my creations. There's plenty in this book to keep an adult interested! By the way, to the reviewer who expressed dismay at the difficulty of finding replacement clay, look for Sculpey III at your local craft store - that is the type of clay used in the book.

I really like the activities in this book but I think that most of them are to hard for anyone below the age of ten. I still have trouble with the details even though I am thirteen. you also need to find a different red color. It stained my clothes and all I did was drop it on them. Other than those complaints though, you did a good job. You need to make another book of things to do with the clay.
